Nightfall, Center of the World
Mixed Media
46" x 36"
This is a fairly new work that I pulled out of my studio painting rack yesterday. Its an acrylic painting combined with some collage elements...its about a moment in time that occurred while I was out walking- awhile ago on my birthday. While walking down the hill I saw the sun setting on the ocean... and then I looked behind me and saw the moon setting on the opposite horizon. At that moment I felt like I had reached the middle of my life, and at a point in space where I felt like I was in the middle of the world.....deep, huh? That's what can happen when you go for long, meditative walks on your birthday.
